“The Phonics Bug programme is provided by Pearson. It is a fantastic resource … We have found it to be very successful with the children as when they have read a book online they are more likely to want to read the actual book. Therefore our reluctant readers are much more engaged.” - Vikki Mead, Schoolzone

“The Phonics Bug programme offers a comprehensive phonic development package that can be completed in as little as 16 weeks, or extended to meet the needs of individual children and classes.
The high quality resources offered as part of this programme provide invaluable support to help busy teachers ensure they are effectively developing phonics within their classroom and having a lot of fun at the same time.” - John Dabell, Primary Teacher and trained Ofsted Inspector
